FAO in the 2019 humanitarian appeal: Afghanistan - Humanitarian Response Plan 2018-2021

to assist
1.4 million people

FAO requires
USD 30 million

January – December 2019

Ongoing conflict, worst drought in decades and compounding poverty have contributed to a devolving humanitarian crisis. This means limited food production and depleted agricultural assets, which is affecting the livelihoods of those most vulnerable.


FAO is working with partners of the Food Security and Agriculture Cluster to:

• Enhance food security and nutrition, minimize asset depletion and reduce further drought-induced displacement.

• Provide immediate life-saving food assistance.

• Protect vulnerable agriculture-based livelihoods.

• Strengthen needs-based tools and harmonize assessment, emergency preparedness and response capabilities of cluster partners.
